Unfortunately cheese doesn’t easily lend itself to Christmas gifting.  The thought of leaving a hunk of cheese under the Christmas tree or even better, in the stocking over the fireplace, is a concerning deterrent.  

With that being said, the holidays are a time of family get-togethers, staff parties and lots of food.  Cheese fits in perfectly and is a great way to wow your guests with flavors they’ve never experienced.  Now is an amazing time as the case gets bulked up with tons of big, full-flavored cheeses intended to complement all of the rich, savory cuisine everyone is accustomed to this time of the year.

Here are some offered at AMAZING prices until the 24th!
